Abstract/Artist's Statement

The Roman historian Eusebius provides a textual account of the ideology behind building the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. His account alludes to Biblical texts for precedent. This project analyzes the texts that form ideologies behind the constructions of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Dome of the Rock. Through textual and art-historical analysis, I will argue that the Dome of the Rock competes with the Church of the Holy Sepulchre by destroying the textual ideologies behind building the monument.
